Firstly, the spouse or partner can get you more points. If they Retake a test for language or get an educational credential assessment for secondary education, they can boost your points.

Secondly, when you have a high score as a lone applicant your profile is given the scores in a different manner. Based on having a spouse /partner accompanying, and on their profile, you are likely to boost your score when you report them as not-accompanying you.

Thirdly, when your spouse is a strong candidate you must try to calculate the points your spouse is likely to receive on being the main applicant, with (or without) your company with them.

Tip: when you and your spouse/partner are strong, both of you can give a profile to the pool and list each other as accompanying. These steps can double your possibility success.

On receiving a provincial nomination you score 600 additional points. Provinces operate a nomination program which is aligned with Express Entry, and the candidate has to figure out the ideal programs for eligibility and how to apply for them. Applying for it is a separate and detailed process.


A short one-year post-secondary certificate program gets many points. When you have one post-secondary degree, it is worth 120 points, and when you take another one-year program, you get 8 points for education. If you have CLB 9, and two years of work experience in Canada you get 50 points for skills transferability and a total of 58 points.
